The Photochemistry LED Illuminator from Uniqsis meets BS EN 61010 safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use

Uniqsis has introduced the Photochemistry LED Illuminator – a new tool to accelerate reaction optimisation and batch scale-up of photochemical reactions.

The illumination system incorporates LED arrays operating at 6 different wavelengths from 365–525 nm. The LEDs are mounted on cassettes for easy interchangeability, in 24 or 48 well configurations. The system also has the option of using the 6 multi wavelength screening plate for rapid reaction optimisation.

Steve Evans, CCO at Uniqsis said: "The Photochemistry LED Illuminator uses interchangeable arrays of pseudo-monochromatic high-power LEDs in a range of synthetically useful wavelengths, combined with excellent temperature control. This delivers powerful functionality to users to run reaction screening and optimisation experiments with the multi wavelength cassette and the opportunity to run batch scale-up synthesis using the optimum wavelength monochromatic cassette. Furthermore, the Photochemistry LED Illuminator can be fitted with an adapter which supports a flow through glass static mixer chip to allow continuous processing scale up at the designated optimum wavelength”.
